the answer to your question is B on E2020
b. songs the people on the urn appear to be playing.
In these lines, the speaker tells the musicians to play not to the physical ear, but to the spiritual one. This is a metaphorical ear that is meant to be receiving the music of the pipes. He tells us that these songs are "ditties of no tone," which means that the songs do not have tones or notes. They cannot be played, because they are imaginary. Therefore, the author is talking about the songs that the people on the urn are playing, which are similarly imaginary and cannot be heard with the "physical" ear.
In this poem, the author is discussing a scene that appears on an urn. In this scene, a man is chasing a woman, and a young man is playing the pipes. The speaker is fascinated with the scene, and the fact that it will last forever. His tone is encouraging, as he tells the young man to continue playing the pipes. He also tells the lover to not be sad, because even though he will never get to kiss the girl (as the scene is trapped in time), the girl will always remain beautiful, and he will always love her. The tone encourages the images to be happy to be trapped in such beautiful, happy scenes.

The answer is Encouraging
I just took the test
The only other one you could choose is encouraging for he will love forever and she will never grow old. You have to pick the way you feel it. I would choose the first one, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the second or last.
